Nicki Minaj’s Sudden Retirement Announcement Draws Confused Responses
By Yimin Huang, 06 Sep 2019
On Thursday, Nicki Minaj announced out of the blue on Twitter that she has “decided to retire” to start a family. While many of her ardent fans have responded emotionally, there are others who aren’t convinced.
The reason for some doubts over Minaj’s words lies in her unreliable teasing behavior with fans in the past. For instance, back in 2016, Minaj posted a fake fruit-inspired album track list that was never made.
Whether her tweet is true this time is hard to tell. Many fans have reacted strongly, with one saying, “stop this ain’t funny.” Others congratulate the singer with tearful emojis and hearts, while hoping that she can still continue with her music alongside her family responsibilities.
For those who are especially devastated by the turn of events, there is a slice of good news. In February, Minaj teased that her fifth album was done, but there was no information on the release date.
Assuming she is not pulling her fans’ legs again, there may be room for one more project before she exits the music scene.
